Vintage Hardware, Architectural Elements
I found these pieces on Kijiji. Out of town. They arrived today. It appears they are all samples of drawer pulls from the 1920's and 30's. What's not to love? Metal and Bakelite!
I am very fond of the butterscotch colouring too.
They may be drawer pulls, but to me they are small architectural elements.
Perfect for adding interest, detail, texture, etc. to a shadowbox.
Some of the all-metal pieces have some condition issues. No biggie. Can you imagine the pieces of furniture these would have graced in their own time?
Bonus! Many have their original descriptive tags on them.
